Although Fall is here, in California it doesn’t feel like it. With a nice, crisp drink in our hand, we can work our way through this hot October and continue getting ready for the holiday season, even when it doesn’t feel like it.

A cherry champagne mojito is a perfect drink to sip on while getting ready for Halloween or just enjoying so down time with family or friends. The drink is pretty simple to make and even looks pretty.

Ingredients:

  • 5 pitted cherries
  • 4-6 mint leaves
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz rum
  • Champagne or Prosecco

Directions:

Toss the cherries and mint into a glass, add the lime juice and simple syrup and muddle it all up. Next add your rum and stir is all together. Fill your glass with as much ice as desired and then top is off with champagne. Gently stir to mix all the ingredients together and top off with a cherry and mint leaf.

This drink is refreshing and yummy and fast to make! Let us know if you’ve tried it!
